"Ethnology" Ecomuseum at Montrol-Sénard
This genuine Limousin village evokes rural life at the beginning of the 20th century in authentic buildings: the "Chabatz d’Entrar" House with its cellar-stable, the farm bakehouse, the public washing place, the pig and hen houses, the bread oven, the butcher common, the granary ("hemp and wool" exhibition), the clogmaker's workshop, the cobbler's, the Nostalgia cafe, the barn-stable ("Rural Habitation" and "How to slaughter a pig" exhibitions) and the blacksmith's forge.
Leave on a discovery of an architectural heritage that symbolises the Haute-Vienne. The "Ethnology" circuit evokes rural life at the beginning of the 20th century in authentic buildings where it's easy to imagine daily life for these descendants of the "croquants" (16th/17th century rebellious peasants), so well described in the book by Eugène Leroy: 'Jacquou le Croquant'.
